Trump plans to cut US military presence in Germany – reports
US President Donald Trump is planning to reduce the number of American troops stationed in Germany, several media outlets reported, citing an unnamed official.
The exact size of the force that could be moved out is still unknown, but reports at Reuters and the Wall Street Journal say that preliminary plans involve up to 9,500 soldiers – more than one fourth of the 34,500-strong contingent – that could be redeployed by September.
Some media, like Germany’s Deutsche Welle, promptly linked the withdrawal to Washington’s dissatisfaction with Berlin over its continuous failure to contribute two percent of its GDP to the NATO budget, as is required under alliance guidelines. Last August, the former US ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, sparred with German MPs after complaining that it was “insulting” for Berlin to expect US taxpayers to “keep paying for over 50,000 Americans” stationed in the country.
